Pouring rain brings Pawi to the fore in Warm Up

The rain was back with a vengeance in Germany, Pawi leading a soaked Warm Up session.

Doubts about what the weather would do on Sunday were put to rest when the Moto3™ World Championship went out for Warm Up. Many riders spent as long as they could out on track to try and understand the Sachsenring in the wet.

Malaysia’s wet-weather ace Khairul Idham Pawi (Honda Team Asia) showed the speed that won him the Argentina GP, topping the session with a 1’40.072.

Andrea Locatelli (Leopard Racing) was the first victim of the wet, getting on the throttle just a bit too early out of Turn 13. He was unharmed and remounted to set a 1’40.401 to end second fastest.

Bo Bendsneyder (Red Bull KTM Ajo) completed the top three but was 0.504s slower than Pawi’s best lap.

Jorge Martin (Pull & Bear Aspar Mahindra) was fourth with John McPhee (Peugeot MC Saxoprint) completing the top five.

Wildcard Max Kappler (KRM-RZT) crashed towards the end of the session at Turn 11.
